There were these developments for several states and Washington: 1 Seven speakers from Congress and elsewhere will begin moving into New Hampshire next week to boom Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower for that state's 14 delegates to the GOP presidential nominating con. vention. 2. Gov. John Lodge of Connecti- cut publicly came out for Eisen- hower (and announced he is going on a speaking tour of Florida, Mississippi and Louisiana....... 3. Louisiana Eisenhower backers feuding with sponsors of Sen. Taft of Ohio are seeking to force the GOP state central committee to certify the returns of the Jan. 15 party primary in which Eisenhower supporters won the majority of seats. Want Ike Home 4. In Washington, evidence mounted that the general's sup- porters are building up pressure for him to return home and help get the bandwagon rolling. 5. Eisenhower still has a 5 to 3 edge over Taft in Oklahoma, but Taft picked up two more delegates to the GOP national convention yesterday (Wednesday) in the struggle for Oklahoma's 16 repre- sentatives. Gen. Douglas MacAr- thur has one, one is still uncommit- ted, and six more are to be elected. Sen. Brewster however, wasn't too impressed with all the "I Like Dee" activity. He predicted that if present political trends con- tinue, Taft will have the GOP nomination "sewed up" within a Few weeks. Says Mac for Taft Sen. Kerr a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination if President Truman doesn't run, said MacArthur is sup- porting Taft in an effort to prevent the Republicans from nominating Eisenhower. But all the political news wasn't confined to the General and Taft With Truman's plans still a mystery, Sen. Russell (D-Ga) said he deeply appreciates the sugges- tion by Gov. James F. Byrnes of South Carolina that Russell be a presidential candidate. .But he ducked any direct commitment at this time. Byrnes, in an Atlanta speech yesterday said it is time for the South to fight again for states' rights this time using ballots in- stead of bullets. He said it's time to let everyone know that the electoral vote of the South "no longer can be taken for granted."

A pos- Allies, Reds Yield Ground In Truce Talks Still Far Apart On North Korean Airport Issue MUNSAN, Korea and Allies each gave ground today and narrowed the gap on troop rotation and the future of displaced ci- vilians. But negotiators remained as far apart as ever on key issues block- ing a Korean armistice. Allied negotiators abandoned de- mands that the Communists trade displaced civilians for U. N.-held war prisoners and that impartial teams interview civilians to deter- mine whether they want to live in North or South Korea. The U. N. reiterated, hoever, that all prisoners must have the right to choose whether they want to be re- patriated. No Progress on Key issue In an adjoining tent the Commu- nits gave ground in the dispute over troop rotation during an armistice. The Allies said they would talk about the Communists' definition of coastal waters and consider dropping two demands re- lating to troop dispositions during a truce. But the key issue of whether the Reds have the right to build and repair North Korean airfields dur- ing an armistice has been shelved for the time being. The U. N. command continued its study of a Red proposal that a high level political conference be held within 90 days after an arm- istice is signed to consider all Asian problems looking toward peace in Korea. The Allies did not suggest a date, for another full dress session oa armistice agenda item ommendations to governments in- volved in Korea. The U. N. said Wednesday it would request anoth- er meeting after studying the Red draft. Washington sources said the Com- munist proposal is under study by tbp level officials and Gen. Mat- thew B. Ridgway probably will be instructed to make a counter offer soon. Will Accept Conference These sources said the U. S. is prepared to agree to a conference to consider withdrawing foreign troops from Korea and peaceful settlement of the Korean question, but will balk at discussing broader issues such as Formosa. Staff officers working on truce supervision and prisoner exchange will meet again at 11 a.m. Friday. The Allies said they would con- sider extending the boundary of coastal waters 12 miles offshore, as the Reds have asked. The U. N. range country was hinted.

Formally Ascends Throne on Friday Funeral of George VI Next Week; Built Coffin From Oak on Estate LONDON Queen Elizabeth II returned to her homeland today to ascend the throne and bury King George VI. The 25-year-old queen of the United Kingdom and the dominions overseas reached London after a flight from Nairobi, Kenya. It was exactly a week since she left London, as Princess Elizabeth, to maue a round-the-world tour of five months. _ A plain oak coffin was being prepared for the remains of ner father, King George VI. The funeral will be held next week. The four-engined transport carrying the royal party -set down p.m. after a one-stop flight.

Writer, to Tell of Slayings WASHINGTON American newsman will tell congressmen to- day how Russian authorities tried .to blame the German Nazis for the massacre of Polish offi- cers in World War II. .Henry Cassidy, former chief of The Associated Press; Bureau in Moscow, has been called to tes- tify before a spe- cial House com- mittee investigat- ing the massacre in Katyn Forest. Four witnesses have told the committee alrea- dy that the Rus- sians shot and strangled the Po- 1 i s h prisoners whose bodies _ were found by the Henry Cassidy Germans. Cassidy was one of a group of Moscow foreign correspondents taken by the Soviets to view mass graves at Katyn in mid-January, 1944. The forest is 33 miles west of Smolensk. The Nazis located the graves the previous April when they over- ran Smolensk. Berlin immediately broadcast the news and said the Soviets had done the killing. Moscow authorities answered the charge within 48 hoars with the claim that the Nazis had killed the prisoners after capturing the cial Polish inquiries as to the whereabouts of missing Harriman, daughter of W.

Ridgway's public information of- ficer today said some U.N. com- mand news correspondents are abusing their privileges in cover- ing the armistice talks at Panmun- jom by "fraternization and traf- ficking with the enemy." In a memorandum to correspond- ents, Col. George Patrick Welch, public information officer, said: "It has, therefore, become neces- sary to request all UNC corre- spondents entering the Panmunjom neutral area for the purpose of covering the armistice talks to con- luwuuiicu .tiiiv-Laii. duct themselves in such a manner Louis, Mo., for the production, en- so as to avoid any suggestion' that gineering and tooling of a new military security is being placed in possible jeopardy or that traffic certainly implies that no article of any kind will pass between our correspondents and the enemy." Welch's memorandum: "The UNC has viewed with grow- ing apprehension the practices of certain- UNC correspondents of ex- cessive social consorting including drinking of alcoholic -beverages with Communist as differentiated from required professional contacts. "Unguarded conversations dur- ing such unnecessary social ses- sions might well jeopardize the security of military forces. It is a basic policy to afford all UNC correspondents complete access to, and freedom of movement through, UNC positions and .installations. Any portion of such a wealth of military knowledge were it to be divulged inadvertently to the en-: emy, could endanger the lives; of many of our men. "Certain UNC correspondents have entered into- surreptitious and personal arrangements with the en- emy to deliver modern camera equipment into the prisoner of, war camps where our soldiers are be- ing held, to receive photographs taken in Communist prison camps and to receive recordings for radio broadcast of UNC prisoners of war interviews made in Communist prison camps."

U.S. Confident African Bases Can Be Protected WASHINGTON The 'Air Force is confident that the half dozen American air bases in strat- egic North Africa are safe from the tide of unrest which is stir- ring the Islam world. Officials said that in talks here and abroad no concern is express- ed over the security of the big air field at Tripoli or the five operat- ing bases under construction in Morocco. In answer to questions, the offi- cials give no specific reasons why they are confident that no danger to American operations of the bases exists, other than to say that the serious outbreaks so far have occurred in areas other than Trip- oli and Morocco. Strong nationalistic moves have been aimed against the French in Tunisia and the British in Egypt. Of particular significance to the United States is the issue of air bases raised by nationalists in Mo- rocco. France acquired a protec- torate in Morocco two decades ago. When, recently, the United States wanted to build a southern bastion for its chain of air bases in Europe, it'chose Morocco. The primary negotiations were with France. The Moroccans appear to have been dealt into the matter only through a liaison between the French government' and the Sul- tan of Morocco. The Sultan's for- eign minister also is the French resident general. Thus, the United States contends, the agreements on the Moroccan bases extend to the Moroccan as well as the French government. Ardent Moroccan nationalists chal- lenge this. Actually, Air Force confidence in the security of its air bases from any spread of the Islam un- rest from Tunisia and Egypt into Morocco and Tripoli seems to be predicated on expectation that French protectorate authorities in Morocco and the new government in Tripoli can control those areas.

Elizabeth 7th Ruling Queen in British History LONDON Elizabeth's tain its third living queen and the seventh woman monarch in the na- tion's history. 4 Under two previous abeth I and Victoria the coun- try achieved its greatest glories. Both lived to a ripe old age. Eliza- beth was 69 when she died in 1603 after a 45-year reign. Victoria died at 81 after the longest royal life of all British rulers. She was queen for 63 1837 to 1901. The new queen's grandmother, Mary, who shared the reign oi King George V, is alert and active at 84. The Queen Mother Elizabeth will be 52 this summer- The first British queen after Wil- liam the Conqueror was Lady Jane Grey, who occupied the throne only nine days in 1553 before she was beheaded for treason. Mary I was 43 when she died, Mary II only 33 and Anne 49. Victoria at 18 was the youngest queen to ascend the throne. Eliza- beth I was 25, as is her namesake, the new queen. LONDON na- tional anthem automatically became "God Save the Queen" when Princess Elizabeth, was proclaimed the new sovereign by the accession council today. LONDON At noon today British warships and army posts throughout the world start firing at minute intervals 56 rounds one for each year of the life of King George VI. LONDON of the two thrones which have remained side by side in the House of Lords throughout the reign of King George VI willbe remov- ed today. A single throne will symbolize the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The Duke of Edin- burgh, who is expected to be created prince consort when Queen Elizabeth wills it, will occupy a small gilt chair on one of the lower steps at the opening of Parliament. gation on hand to welcome the new queen. The skies were gray. The royal family was represent- ;d by the Duke and Duchess of loucester, aunt and uncle of the queen. Another uncle, the Duke of Windsor, is sailing home from New York to attend the funeral. Takes Over Friday In resounding, historic phrases, Elizabeth, slim and 25, will be for- mally proclaimed queen tomorrow. After 51 years, a woman again reigns over Britain, her colonies and the commonwealth. The scene at the airport was a cheerless one, in the gathering gloom of the early English twilight The airport was ringed by scores of policemen sent to keep the ar- rival private. Prime Minister Churchill had appealed to the pub- lic in advance to stay away from the airport and respect the queen's grief. Elizabeth stepped out of the plane at p.m. It was arranged that she go to Clarence House, her residence as princess, and then to Buckingham Palace to take the oath to uphold the constitution, be- fore the Privy Council. Tomorrow she will be formally proclaimed first woman to rule Britain in 51 years. V Police Along Route Six .cars stood by at the airport to take the royal party and its lug- gage to the heart of London. Po- licemen were posted along the 15- mile route from the airport to cen- tral London, to speed the motor convoy. Churchill bowed deeply and shook hands with the queen as she stepped from the plane, closely fol- lowed by her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh. Elizabeth wore a black hat and coat. The duke, in a dark over- coat, was hatless. Five minutes after they left the plane the queen and the duke drove away toward London. A thin line of spectators stand- ing outside the airport saw the procession pull away. A group of soldiers snapped a salute at the royal car as it pass- ed. The queen unsmilingly waved back. At the Sandringham royal es- tate, where her father died peace- fully in his sleep yesterday morn- ing, silent, sorrowing carpenters sawed, hammered and fitted the king's coffin from a great oak tree, felled months ago on the estate where he was born and died. The body of the monarch, dead at 56 after years of strain and illness, is expected to lie in state for three or four days in the gray, 16th century Sandringham church, where he worshipped ev- ery was in residence there at his favorite country re- treat. He will be buried from St. George's chapel at Windsor Castle next week. Elizabeth became queen at the moment of her father's death. She was in her vacation lodge in Kenya colony, far away in East Africa, where she had paused early in what was to have been a five- month round-the-world tour. Delays Irk Truman May Have to Run Again To Get Into White House WASHINGTON Truman is getting pretty tired of delays in the rebuilding of the White House. He wants to move madam and the taby (that's Mrs.- Tru- man and Margaret) back into the mansion the first week in April. The President's impatience was reflected yesterday when he took White House newsmen on a 45-minute tour of the resi- which the Iranians moved shortly after his 1948 election victory. He cited two examples of> why the family bad to take refuge in the Blair House, across the i street on Pennsyl- vania Ave. He stamped his foot sharply on the .floor of the sitting room of daughter Margaret's suite and he recalled that one of the legs of Margaret's piano had broken through the floor in 1948, narrowly missing a drop into the family dining room below. On another occasion, the President recalled with a grin, be was bathing when the tub in his own bathroom began to sink beneath him. If it had drop- ped, he said, it would have fal- len' (with him in it) into the below where Mrs. Tru- man often entertained guests. The President laughed over the popular belief that Abra- ham Lincoln slept in the Lin- coln bedroom. Actually, he said, Lincoln used the room as a study and he slept, at one time or another, in practically every other room on the second floor. The reconstruction is cost-. ing around On KWNO Tonight Two special events in connec- tion with the death of King George VI and the ascension of Queen Elizabeth will be carried on KWNO AM and FM tonight Prime Minister Churchill's ad- dress on the king's death will be rebroadcast at p.m. At 11 p.m. hour-long program on the documented story of new British royal family will be broadcast Queen Mary Mourns Death Of Third Son LONDON queen mother, Mary, mourned in total seclusion today -the death of a third son, King George VI. But from the top of Marlbor- ough house, her official London residence, her flag still flew at full staff. A police geant on near her home explained, "It is the personal flag Queen Mary, always has flown as now Dowager Queen Mary X1OWH aa 1JUW wwww" when she is in is not lowered to half staff." AH other flags throughout the country were. It was just before a.m. yes- terday when the queen grand- mother was preparing to go through the day's letters with her private secretary tfiat she was told her son had died. At once the 84-year-old queen withdrew to a first-floor lounge and stayed there throughout day, refusing to see anyone. But last night her daughter, Princess Alice, was with her for an hour. Queen Mary has lived to see the close of five reigns, the death of three of her four sons and her only daughter widowed. As Duchess of Cornwall and York, she saw the death of Queen Victoria on a bleak January day in 1901. Nine years later on May 0, 1910, as Princess of Wales, she was in the bed- while Ed- ward VTI wai dying. Her husband, George V, died in January, 1938, and she passed through the ab- dication of her eldest son, Ed- ward vrn. Her youngest son, Prince John, died in 1919, and the Duke of Kent Duke of Windiorwas killed in an airplane crash in 1942. Her only daughter, Princess Alice, was widowed two years ago when the Earl of Harewood died.' And now the indomitable old lady the English cockney calls "the grand ol 'un'" mourns an- other son.
